    I've spotted it a couple of times on vans, is it a mobius strip?
    .... just wondered like
    I'm sorry, but I'll make no apologies for this

    It looks more like a red pringle to me.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    I reckon its some reference to infinity.

    Barely a mobius strip, there is no depth to the surrounding line.
    Never has a man been heard to say on his death bed that he wishes he'd spent more time in the office.

    It's not a mobius strip. It's a saddle.

    Although the edge does look like the infinity symbol when flat on the page, it has a shaded interior surface, giving it one edge and two faces. A mobius strip has one edge and one face.
